$10K Reward Offered for Obama’s College Transcripts

The Daily Caller

The Daily Caller has identified the owner of a website that promised on  Tuesday to pay $10,000 to anyone who can provide an authentic copy of President  Barack Obama’s course transcripts from his days at Occidental College, Harvard  University or Columbia University.

Although its one-page  website is presented anonymously, conservative blogger Brooks Bayne confirmed to The Daily Caller  that he is responsible for it.

Bayne told  TheDC that a group of eight people  – including some he called “recognizable” figures – are coordinating the effort to make Obama’s  college transcripts public, Bayne told The Daily Caller. He declined to  name any of them.

“We are doing this because we are tired of the media not doing their job,” he  said. ”We are tired of the PR propaganda coming out of places  like Media Matters, and we are tired of this administration stonewalling  over things like Fast and Furious.”

“We are tired of a lot of things.”

The $10,000 reward, he explained, is “absolutely” real and will be paid to  anyone who can provide any verifiable college transcripts belonging to Obama.  Bayne said his organization’s members plan to pool their money to raise the  cash prize, and added that the amount could grow if others step forward to  contribute.

Obama himself is not eligible to claim the reward, Bayne said. The president  may, however, release his academic records voluntarily, he added.

And given media reports about financial pressures professional educators  face, he said, the $10,000 offer could be attractive.

“Maybe they have a copy of the transcripts laying around,” Bayne told TheDC. “They can make some cash. I mean, we are just trying to spread the wealth  around.”

Bayne confirmed that neither Gov.  Mitt Romney nor his presidential campaign is involved with his group’s  effort, or with the $10,000 reward for Obama’s college transcripts. The question  itself prompted a laughing fit that lasted for roughly 20 seconds. He also  insisted that there are no right-wing pressure groups — what he called “shadow  groups” and “beltway douche-bag groups” — pulling the strings.

But like right-leaning groups in Washington, D.C., Bayne believes media  outlets have given President Obama a free pass on his personal history. And  because academic records are an indication of a candidate’s intellect and  seriousness, he said, Obama’s college transcripts are fair game,

But for some reason, he mused, no one has been able to find  Obama’s. ”But they sure found George Bush’s college transcripts, didn’t  they?”

The website advertising Bayne’s $10,000 bounty reads like a  direct challenge to the press.

“You’ve failed, media,” it says.

“You’ve had over three years to vet President Barack Obama. Yet in three  years in office and over a year of campaigning beforehand, you have either been  oddly uninterested or purposefully ignorant of Barack Obama’s educational  history.”

Finding the president’s transcripts, the website adds, “would represent more  intellectual curiosity about the leader of the free world than the media has  demonstrated since Obama won the Democrat primary.”

The statement provides a link to the college transcripts of former  President George W. Bush, which The New Yorker published in November 1999, a  full year before his election to the presidency.

“Media, your stranglehold on the truth ends NOW. Let the vetting begin,” the  website proclaims.

The statement is signed “Bellum Letale,” a Latin expression meaning “deadly  war.”
